2008 Session Schedule

The CWAM Program Committee is proud to announce the 2008 Annual Meeting Keynote Speaker, Ron Chew, Executive Director of the Wing Luke Asian Museum in Seattle, WA.

Chew, a Seattle native, has a journalism background and a history of community activism. As a self-taught museum professional, he organized the Chinese Oral History Project of Seattle in 1990 and edited a companion volume, Reflections of Seattle’s Chinese Americans, in 1994.  Chew was hired in 1991 as the Executive Director for the Wing Luke Asian Museum, and has since elevated it from a struggling artifact-based museum into an award-winning center based on collaborative projects with the region’s diverse Asian/Pacific Islander communities. His work with the Museum and community led to an appointment by President Bill Clinton to the National Council on the Humanities in 2001.
